L.A. district attorney reviewing Bryson incident
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors on Monday said they are reviewing evidence to determine whether charges should be filed against former Commerce Secretary John Bryson who was involved in a trio of traffic accidents last month.
Evidence was presented by San Gabriel police to county prosecutors Monday, said Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. She declined to comment further about the case.
Bryson resigned June 21 after suffering a seizure, saying he didn’t want his health to be a distraction from his job. Authorities said Bryson struck a car stopped for a train twice and then rammed into another vehicle with his car a few minutes later. He was found unconscious in his vehicle.
Bryson was cited for felony hit-and run. It wasn’t known if he had retained an attorney.
A Breathalyzer test administered to Bryson shortly after the crashes didn’t detect any alcohol.
Police received the results from a blood test given to Bryson, but didn’t reveal what it contained. Authorities previously said if the test came back clean, it was unlikely charges would be filed against Bryson.
Bryson had been in California to deliver the commencement address at Pasadena Polytechnic School where his four children attended.
The incident occurred June 9 when Bryson drove alone in a Lexus near Los Angeles, authorities said. He struck a vehicle that had stopped for a passing train and spoke briefly with the three occupants then hit their car again as he departed, police said.
The secretary then struck a second car in a nearby city, where he was later found unconscious in his car.
Bryson is the former head of Edison International, the holding company that owns Southern California Edison, and has served on boards of major corporations, including the Boeing Co. and the Walt Disney Co.
